She may have played a stone-cold assassin in Colombiana… But Zoë Saldaña is a real-life hero and Good Samaritan.
The 33-year-old half-Dominican/half-Puerto Rican American actress, who just received an NAACP Image Award nomination, rushed to help an elderly woman reportedly been involved in a car accident in Culver City, California this week.
“Zoe witnessed the car accident, and was very quick to help,” says an onlooker. “She immediately got on the phone with 911 and she seemed very concerned.”
Saldaña and another passerby helped move the woman – who was conscious but injured – from her car to a nearby curb. There they called 911 and waited for police and paramedics to arrive.
“While waiting for help to arrive, Zoe returned to the woman’s car and picked up the woman’s handbag and sweater,” said the onlooker.” Zoe was very caring and sweet to the woman.”
A rep for Saldana had no comment.
